I got the ADM knob kit for my new CGEM. Also got their replacement CGEM combo saddle and their Vixen side-by-side setup. I bought an extension cord for the hand control from ScopeStuff. I love my new mount - I hope you enjoy yours!
Does the knob kit come with new screws or is it just the knob that will fit on the old screws. One of my AZ screws somehow got cross threaded so if it is all new screws as well I am getting the kit for mine.

If you can't resurrect the threads you can effectively replace them with a Helicoil, then have Anthony at ADM make you up a new bolt that matches the new threads.

Talk to Anthony at ADM directly, he does have the ability to anodize some of his parts in different colors ... for a price.
Does anyone know if they make a D-style plate in the new Celestron orange like the Edge HD scopes (and that a lot of these parts also come in)? It would be nice to be able to match the color scheme used on the new scopes for some other OTA's. Thanks, Gord

Definitely add an extension for the hand control cable to the list...I got one at scopestuff-
The stock cable is too short for my use in my observatory.

Sweet mount, Bob.
